4.b3 the solidifies the on-coming checkmate with 5.Bd2#/Checkmate.
But if you do a4, then there is checkmate in five moves. - harrassment if a4
then 4.a4 - Bb3 5.cxb3 not mate in 5
nice one! i mistake 2x thiss mate
The first three moves made it look as if the mate was not there. Good one

many ways to solve
what if black bishop takes the b pawn - then it is not mate in 5
Then White retakes with the a pawn, and checkmates via the rook on a1 on the 5th move.
Not so easy...

What do both of these words mean?
Got sidetracked here looking for mate in the a8 corner. When I got on the right path, couldn't believe white would sacrifice both knights. That's ballsy ! Solution not at all obvious to me which is how they should be - a good one.
No forced variation.
Good one.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Played beautifully and lost. Help!
